Commissioned by Irish Arts Center as part of Grásta: Grace in Uncertainty, 2020-2021

Following Grammy-winning artist Aoife O’ Donovan brand-new single ‘Transatlantic’, she
has announced a Dublin show for 2022. Performing at The Liberty Hall Theatre, Dublin on
Friday, 03rd July 2022. Tickets Ticketmaster.ie and Tickets.ie.
The video for “Transatlantic,” commissioned by IAC for Grásta, will also be shared with IAC
audiences on Tuesday as part of this early debut.

Aoife speaks about the record, “I started writing ‘Transatlantic’ many years ago—after
one of my frequent trips across the pond. The lyric started as a classic love song, but
when I dusted it off to complete it for this project with Irish Arts Center, it became
something different. I felt strangely moved by the nostalgia and longing for
camaraderie, innocently described by my pre-pandemic self. As I finished the tune in
January of this year—feeling certain of nothing but the uncertainty of these times—I
immediately began to hear the voice of Kris Drever, a friend based in Glasgow. Kris
enlisted his trio mates Euan Burton and Louis Abbott to be the rhythm section, and
layered the recording with the inimitable strings of Jeremy Kittel. The refrain references
the old classic Loch Lomond, a ‘song from another time.’
“Raise a glass. We will be together again.”
